       A water bearer had two large pots,each hung onone end of a pole which he carried on hisshoulder.One of the pots had a crack in it, and the other was in good quality.So the good one always delivered a full portion of water each time the water bearer walked from the stream to his master’s house,but the cracked one carried only half full.

  For two years this went on daily,with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots of water to his master’s house.Of course,the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishment.
  The poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection,and felt miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do.After two years of what it thought to be a bitter failure,it spoke to the water bearer one day when he arrived by the stream.
  “I amashamed of myself,and I want to apologize to you.”
  “Why?”asked the bearer.“What are you ashamed of?”
  “I have been able,for these past two years,to deliver only half my load because this crack on my body causes water to leak all the way to your master’s house.Because of my flaw,you don’t get full value fromyour efforts,”the pot said.
  The water bearer felt sorry for the old cracked pot.In his compassion(同情)he said,“As we return to the master’s house,I want you to look at the beautiful flowers along the path.”Indeed,as they went up the hill,the old cracked pot took notice of the sun warming the beautiful wild flowers on one side of the path,and was cheered up a little.But at the end of the trail,it still felt bad because half of the water had leaked out.So the pot apologized to the bearer for its failure,again.
  The bearer said to the pot,“Did you notice that there were flowers only on your side of your path,but not on the other pot’s side?That’s because I have always known about your flaw,and I took advantage of it.I planted flower seeds on your side of the path,and every day while we walk back from the stream,you’ve watered them.For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate my master’s table.Without you being just the way you are,he would not have this beauty to grace his house.”
